After working closely with Somerset Council's Conservation Officer, we have received Listed Building Consent and Planning permission for this splendid grade II listed Georgian farmhouse in Ilminster, South Somerset.

The works entail converting a stone outbuilding to form a self-contained annexe, linked to the main house. This will involve inserting a staircase to a mezzanine floor, adding new doors and windows, forming rooflights, and undertaking a complete internal refurbishment including lime plaster walls and a limecrete floor.

Externally, we have designed a kitchen garden framed by a new wall constructed in local Blue Lias stone. Adjacent to this will be a new barn, clad in Western Red Cedar boarding, with a natural slate roof. In addition, we have proposed that an existing courtyard be opened up with timber gates, allowing views across the fields to the southeast.

Works to the main house include adding steel conservation rooflights to the attic, as well as creating a family bathroom and a master ensuite bathroom on the first floor.

The proposed works will allow this to become an attractive and versatile home for a modern family. Construction work on the first phase is due to start shortly.
